    Hours Per Week??

    What are you guys getting per week? (Hours wise) For whatever reason they company I'm working for is super busy at this point in time. I checked in at nearly 78 hours last week!! Just wondering if this is just a random happening or if anyone else is experiencing this aswell?

    Rather mild here, about 45 hours


    Sent directly from my thoughts using tinfoil antennas and a stainless steel mixing bowl helmet.

    78 hours a week , that's when accidents happen, and bodies need patch kits.

    We are real busy here also. My work is starting to back up. Just closed up a CVHE after complete teardown and put on nitrogen. Tomorrow leak check, paint, and put on vacuum. Another one to teardown after this one. After that I can start to catch up on other jobs.

    Agreed. We have way too many jobs that are incomplete and will have to scramble to Finish.

    The company I work for is pretty well staffed. There hasn't been a whole lot of overtime yet this year. I worked 41 hours last week.

    Our busy season hasn't quite started yet though.

    47 hours last week. That's plenty for me.

    I have been clocking in right around 39-40 each week. It's been very nice here for the most part. After this rain moves out the humidity should kick in and things will really get going.

    Anywhere from 40-70 hours a week, for the last 4 years. Tired...... Very, very tired.

    If a day goes by and you have learned nothing, I hope you got a lot of sleep.

    All winter was a hussle, we had 2 mechanics, and it was all we could do to stay afloat, and somewhat caught up. I'd say I averaged 45-50 hours all winter with a few being more than that. Our other mechanic quit due to the temptation of a much much better job, so I'm left solo. I managed to get a couple 40 hour weeks in, and it felt real good. But now I'm running 50+ hour weeks trying to keep the fires put out until we can get some help. I don't mind working extra when we're busy, but the scary thing is, this is traditionally our slow time. I'm nervous for summer!
